Spring is often a livelier time of year on the real estate market, as people prepare to move during the warmer months. Since Ottawa is currently experiencing an unusually low inventory of homes for sale, buyers are eagerly awaiting more options to appear in the market this spring. This climate could put you at an advantage as a seller, but only if you take full advantage of the opportunity.

Waste no time getting your home ready for the discerning eyes of prospective buyers. Take on any repairs now, before they are pointed out by an home inspector. Start now to clean and declutter your home so it will look its best before it is listed. Wash dingy winter dirt off windows and floors and make every corner shine. We can work with you to make a list of priorities tailored to your home.

Curb appeal is of particular importance as the warmer weather approaches. Your home makes its first impression before the buyer is inside the front door, so make the most of what your home’s exterior has to offer. Be the first on your block to clean up the mess that winter leaves behind. As soon as weather permits, trim any fallen branches, clean and mulch flower gardens, and make sure your yard is pristine.

Currently, the market in Ottawa is tight. A home that comes on the market in excellent condition at the “right” price will not stay on the market for long if it is listed and marketed properly. Fortunately, our team has years of experience and can help you to position your home as the most attractive listing in your neighbourhood and negotiate the best possible sale for you and your family.
